Pool, 2022. Cyanotype on painted river rocks. Dimensions variable.
"Pool" (2022) is a series of fifteen cameraless cyanotypes made on various river rocks collected by my father. Chemically imprinted with light and time shortly after his death and on the anniversary of my mother’s, these objects refer to both absence and presence. Arranged to mimic the shape of the backyard pool where he tragically drowned, the rocks lie clustered near the ground, their placement suggestive of a burial mound or memorial site. Through this act of transformation, the ordinary stones become imbued with layers of personal and symbolic meaning, speaking to themes of loss, the passage of time, and connection to place.
